The room was small but clean and had a tiny balcony on the main road which is quite busy with motorised bicycles and horse traffic. There are trucks on this island so it is not as quiet as the Smaller ones. The bathroom was the tightest I have ever seen so that it was just big enough to fit one... More

We spent about a week in this nice place. What can I say..this is a really perfect option where to stay if you are on Büyükada. Clean room, very good breakfast, quiet environment and so nice personal. We felt more like dear guests in someone's home than hotel's visitors. Pier and food center are just five minutes to walk. So... More

The Gala Hotel is very neat, very well cleaned all day lang. The interior is white and a little bit kitsch. Really nice people. We wanted to drink a beer and they went to get it for us. Breakfast is very healthy. Wifi is fantastic. Only one person speaks English, that can be a challenge.

5 mins walk to the port, this hotel is located on a quiet street of the Princes' Island. The staff was very polite, helpful and the service, including the breakfast, was very good.

This was a quaint hotel with a cozy atmosphere. The bathroom was extremely small and it was located a little ways from the main attractions. It was clean and had great customer service. We had a cute little balcony connected to our room that was great for relaxing. It was very nostalgic hearing the pitter patter of horses ridding by.

I stayed two nights in the Gala Hotel. The photos you see of the hotel are exactly the same as the reality. The hotel was beautiful, very clean, and the service I was given was wonderful. Any complaints I had, they fixed and continued to follow up on, so I appreciated that... I am forgetful and left a few things... More
